Subaru Forester new tires/ front end alignment
I just replaced the tires on my 2009 Forester for the first time at Goodyear with Assurance TripleTred. They insisted that I needed a front end alignment which I consented to. On the diagnostic paper, none of the actual numbers for camber, caster, and toe fall within the specified range. On this paper, the specified range doesn't match the owner's manual which is zero. Also my front and left tires do not match. My front left tire is now measured at -0.1 (camber), 6.1 (caster), and 0.24 (toe). My front right tire measures 0.5, 5.7, 0.10 respectively. Is this acceptable? I want to understand what all this means. I feel like I need to go back to this place to fix my car. They told me I need a front end alignment every 6 months. I have never heard this before. The rear tires are also off: left rear - 0.2 (camber), 0.2 (toe) right rear: 0.5(camber), 0.09(toe). Somebody educate me, please. I love this car and do not want it messed up. It goes for regular maintenance; this has never been discussed.
